Welcome to Ariel's Nest at Rio Angels! Relax to the roar of the beautiful Animas River right off the many decks of this fabulous 2 bedroom, 2 bath house. Soaring ceilings and expansive 2-story windows face the river where you’ll enjoy 1600 feet of your own private fishing, rafting or swimming paradise. This extraordinary riverfront property is located just 4.5 miles from downtown Durango, yet you will feel like you’re truly on a country vacation, surrounded by huge trees, abundant wildlife, the beautiful Animas River, and spectacular mountains.
Fish from your own private nature trail alongside the river with its white sandy beaches and huge boulders. Share a meal with loved ones at the riverside picnic area. Relax in the hammock, play horseshoes, or drive golf balls on the lawn during the day...enjoy the warmth of the fire from the outdoor fire pit overlooking the river, and marvel at the starry night beneath the magnificent firs and cottonwoods.
This fabulous house sleeps 4 - 6, with two master bedrooms, one down and one upstairs. Each bedroom sleeps two in grand comfort and features a seating area, its own full bath, and opens on to a furnished deck from where you can enjoy the river breezes and cool mountain air.
Downstairs, there is a sleeper sofa in the 2-story living area to accommodate up to 6 guests * (Price based on 4 person occupancy, Extra guest fee applies for groups over 4).
